Just a bit of information in regards to those famous e-books and the demise of print.
- 76% of adults read at least 1 book in the past year and of those readers:
69% read books in print together with
28% who read with e-books and
14% listened to audiobook
- Only 5% of the people who read an e-book didn’t also read a print book.
- Women read more than men
- Higher education levels read more
- Higher income levels read more
Those are the highlights of the article. To me a lot of it was not unexpected but what WAS surprising to me was the fact that e-book readers almost invariably also read in print; and more than twice as many people read print books than e-books. In other words, print books are alive and well!! I have always known people still enjoy reading print books but I think the reverse can’t be said for e-books.
